Easiest Way to Stuff Chicken Breasts

January 13, 2015Danita

When I make recipes like Chicken Cordon Bleu, I usually use the “pound and roll” method.  Meaning, I pound them flat, place whatever I’m stuffing with on top, roll and secure with toothpicks, often lots of toothpicks.  It can be a lot of work.  

Recently, my mother-in-law learned a short cut for stuffing chicken breasts and today on Time Saving Tuesday I’m going to share with you the easiest way to stuff chicken breasts.  Tomorrow, I’m sharing the recipe I tried using this method.  

Instead of pounding the chicken flat, cut a pocket in the thickest part of the chicken and place the “stuffing” inside. Close the “flap” and that’s it!  No need for any toothpicks or messy pounding.  

Step by Step:

Place chicken, smooth side down on cutting board

Using a long thin knife cut through chicken in the thickest part, stopping about 3/4 of the way through

This creates a “flap” that can be pulled back 

Put anything you’d like inside the chicken, just be sure to push it all the way back and close “flap”

Super easy and not nearly as messy as the “pound and roll”.  Perfect for saving time when entertaining or on a busy week night.    

What’s your favorite thing to stuff chicken with?
